Thank you for reposting. BTW, if I recall correctly, someone had posted
that the nominees would have to have resources from their NGO, or other
resources, for travel to various meetings. This may also be important to
repost as would likely eliminate the smaller less well funded NGOs.

** Please distribute this message to your caucuses and working groups
and others who may be interested - the deadline for nominations is
April 12th (it was originally April 10th, but given the slow start
we have decided to extend it to 12 April).**
Further to my message of April 5th, this message is a reminder to all
those interested to submit nominations for the Civil Society Internet
Governance Caucus' (IGC's) IGF Multi-Stakeholder Advisory Group (IGF-
MAG) candidate list as soon as possible.
At a minimum, all nominations and self nominations should consist of
- Name of nominator (or self)
- Country of Residence
- Short Bio relevant to IG
- Why the (self)nominee is a good choice for the MAG
- Willingness to serve on MAG [if not self-nomination]
If the nomination is not a self-nomination, then the nominator
should check with the nominated to ensure that she or he is willing
It would also be useful to indicate that the (self) nominee has the
ability to handle the additional workload. While the work load is
uncertain, it will probably involve 1-2 several day meetings in
Geneva (one has already scheduled in May) and a fair amount of email
traffic. If the WGIG workload is any indication, there may be times -
especially as the Athens meeting approaches, where this could consume
at least a day a week.
We request that either the nominator or the nominee, collect all of
the above information into a single email which should be sent to :
IGC-nomcom at wsis-cs.org before 12 April.
Note: Please indicate the nominee's willingness to have the
nomination published on a web site being created for this purpose.
The creation of the web site is under discussion in the IGC, and it
is important that nominees indicate whether they agree to having
their information made public as was done in the WGIG process.
The candidate list will be forwarded to the IGF secretariat on, or
before, 18 April.
